Regular Season Statistics with the Franchise
Stats in bold signifies team leader.
Hankinson was a part-timer with the Devils, having spent most of his tenure with Utica and Albany, putting on decent
showings while in the minors.

However, he was never able to crack the Devils lineup on a permanent basis.

Actually, after finishing the 95 season with Tampa, he would never play another NHL game. After 3 more seasons in the
minors, the last being with the Orlando Solar Bears of the IHL, he retired.

Currently, he helps run the Hankinson Hockey Development Camp in Edina with brothers Peter and Casey.

He also became a sports agent, currently working out of Octagon Hockey based in Minnesota. I remember that Paul
Martin is one of his clients, or at least was at one time.
Entry Draft: 1987 Sixth Round Pick (107th overall) by the
